Women's Health

Working in healthcare is very personal for me. A family member passed away at a young age from breast cancer, and that led me to become a biologist for breast cancer research. I wanted more in-person time with patients than I had gotten from research.

I came to Mountain Park Health Center after a call with a staff member who told me great things about Mountain Park. They told me about the supportive culture and the nature of the company. I’m from Durham, North Carolina, but I moved across the country to get the opportunity to be at Mountain Park.

My patients can expect to learn about their bodies and wellness and have fun. I have a young spirit and bring that to all of my visits. I notice the small things and details about the patient that can help build trust.
I enjoy cooking, playing with my cat, and reading when I’m not working.
